I agree 100% with TrueBlue and Brooks on this issue. I made this post one day before Brooks wrote his article!
The rollback in salary is a small issue, it only affects the majority of players a couple of years before its time to negotiate new contracts.
The big issue is that players would have no leverege whats so ever, AND negotiating cheap contracts with players will be as important for a teams success as drafting players. I envision that a few players, thoose with leverege because they are franchise players or UFA are gooing to be paid really high while the rest will have a median salary at 850K. This is not something Bettman is interested in achieving, it a by product from his offer but it would be a terrible blow for NHLPA.
